Winemaker Jeffrey Blair Notes
Only 125 cases produced. From the beginning, this Rosé of Pinot Noir was planned as a separate wine. We did not simply “bleed off” juice in the oft used saignée method, as an afterthought to making a red wine. Instead, we employed a short, limited maceration after the fruit was destemmed. The Pinot Noir juice then soaked on its skins for 20 hours, picking up the beautiful pink hue. It was fermented in a cold stainless steel tank to lock in the color and fruit expression. It fermented completely to dryness and then was aged for six months in “neutral” French oak. This second Blair Rosé is a serious “pink” wine. Serve well chilled with a Salade Niçoise or an herbed salmon steak fresh off the grill.
